CLEVELAND – The City of Cleveland provides the following statement based on the latest request regarding the Bird Scooter situation.

Dockless bicycle and scooter systems raise zoning, safety, and right-of-way use issues.  The City of Cleveland is reviewing these issues to establish a framework for the operation of these systems in our City.
